This bowl is made with paper.  Just plain paper.  But it looks like porcelain.  I made it smooth, using a process that I have been developing for the last few months.

Wow! That looks amazing! Did you do it with layers of paper or paper pulp? Sooo cool!  Grin

It is layers of paper.  I did a tutorial on the making of these bowls some time back.  This one, however, I have used a process that I hope to get a patent on.  I've already applied for it, so we shall see.

Wow.  That is really amazing.  It is a beautiful bowl... but made of paper?  Too cool.

This is fantastic! I want to know more about the process! I understand if you want to keep your special process of smoothing a secret, but like the person above I want to know if you used layers, pulp, how you shaped it etc.
Please tell us more! (TUTE!)

Awesome! Is it fragile? Can it get wet or is that a no, no?

I didn't look at who posted the project, but when I read that it was paper made to look like porcelaine, i knew right away it was you pinokeeo.  Beautifully done, and I love the simple lines of it.  How do you seal your bowls??

Thank you for all your kind comments.

Please allow me to explain something here.  I know that Craftster is for freely sharing information.  I appreciate that.  I have over 600 photos on craftster of the things that I have made or produced.  I have also had just about every photo ripped off and put on other websites, all without my permission, and some without even giving me credit for them.  I even had one person take my tutorial and put it on instructibles as his own with my hands in the picture.

Here is the link to the original tutorial.  It will answer many of your questions.  At this time I am not going to give you the information for this new process.  I need to have something for myself.

Enjoy the bowl.
